Target group

The training course can be taken by various target groups which are active in the following functions, among others:

  • all collaborators making use of personal data.

Required prior knowledge

Basic level training: this training requires no prior knowledge and covers the basics of the subject.



The training course consists of two interactive modules in which theory, videos and exercises are combined.

Module 1

The impact of the GDPR legislation on personal data:

  • First we talk about your privacy in the Internet era. Do you remember which companies and websites have access to your private data?
  • In the second part we zoom in on GDPR: what is this law about, and how does it protect personal data?
  • Then we look at how personal data are processed, and what the processor should take into account.
  • Finally we consider the rights of an individual: can you for example arrange to alter or even delete data?

Module 2

The impact of the GDPR directive on organisations and the responsibility of employees:

  • First we study the legal framework: when are you allowed to process your data and how should you do that?
  • In the second part we focus on services and applications: what do you have to take into account when developing a new product?
  • After that, you learn more about how to protect your data against abuse, and which measures you should take if things go wrong nevertheless.
  • Finally we see which persons and authorities play a role in the protection of your privacy. Who is responsible for the correct processing and who exercises control over this?

At the end of each module you will get a number of test questions. Passing this test (minimum rate 75%) entitles you to training points.



  • Duration: 30 minutes per module
  • Training points: each module ends with a test. Obtaining a positive result (75% or more) on the test is required to earn training points.
